Hello, my name is Daniel. I just bought my first ever SLK320. I was looking for a manual Mercedes and a pretty sweet deal came up on this beautiful SLK320 6 SPEED SPORT PACKAGE. It has about 53k miles and is in sweet condition. Because of the previous owner, the engine was seized due to no oil change (jerk). Well, she has found a home where she will be really loved and cared for.... i haven't even drove the car and already ordered about $800 in upgrades >:D. I also posted a question regarding the engine swap. maybe someone with a bit more knowledge about these cars can point me in the right direction..?

Dan

Welcome from Hillsboro, Oregon, and another owner whose car is equipped with the One True Transmission, a 6-speed manual.

Don't know if it's still offered, but at one time Renntech in Florida offered a 4.0-liter stroker motor based on the 3.2-liter block. One of Hartmut Feyhl's engines in front of you manual tranny would be a prodigious beast indeed!

Welcome to the forum! I hope you get the engine swap sorted out, too bad I cannot give any advice on that one, but there are plenty of knowledgeable members here who might point you in the right direction :)

Hi Daniel, our forum is worldwide so Europe was sleeping when you posted your question so hopefully when they wake up, someone can offer some advice.

Welcome from Belgium. Good luck, I personally would not have dropped a ton of money on upgrades until the car was actually running, but that is just me :)

Welcome from sunny Columbus, Ohio! Engine swap, that's a big bite right off the bat to swallow, good luck with doing that. That's something you don't hear much about here. Hope you find your engine.
